The Kansas City Chiefs took the NFL by storm in 2018 and fell just one game short of a Super Bowl appearance for just the second time in their history.\nA good draft class could see them take that final step.\nPlayers Drafted\n\n\n\nPlayer\nPick\nPosition\nSchool\n\n\nMecole Hardman\n56\nWR\nGeorgia\n\n\nJuan Thornhill\n63\nDB\nVirginia\n\n\nKhalen Saunders\n84\nDT\nWestern Illinois\n\n\nRashad Fenton\n201\nCB\nSouth Carolina\n\n\nDarwin Thompson\n214\nRB\nUtah State\n\n\nNick Allegretti\n216\nOG\nIllinois\n\n\n\nNotable UDFA\n\n\n\nPlayer\nPos.\nSchool\n\n\nGary Johnson\nLB\nTexas\n\n\nMark Fields\nCB\nClemson\n\n\nKyle Shurmur\nQB\nVanderbilt\n\n\nJack Fox\nP\nRice\n\n\nDino Boyd\nOL\nCincinnati\n\n\n\nTEAM 2019 Outlook\nOffense\nThere is not a lot the Chiefs needed to add to improve their already incredible team. This is how they did it anyway.\n\nThe Chiefs used their first pick of the draft to add some WR talent to the mix. Assisting QB Patrick Mahomes to add to his 50 TDs from last season will be Georgia WR Mecole Hardman. He is an incredible athlete with speed to burn. He really knows how to stretch the field, causing problems for cornerbacks all through college. Plays best deep out of the slot position. Due to Georgia\u2019s run-heavy offense, he only caught 25 passes last season but will flourish with Mahomes sat the helm.\n\nOn the offensive side of the ball, the Chiefs are one of the most dangerous teams in the NFL.\nDefense\nThe defense needed some work in the offseason. The Chiefs are capable of scoring 50 points a game but will also leak 50 on defense. The addition of Virginia safety Juan Thornhill was a masterstroke from the front office. He will sit behind Tyrann Mathieu for now but should get some game time with the two of them in the near future. A backfield consisting of these two will be hard to attack against.\n\nA versatile player, he spent time at safety and corner, but the former is where his skills lie. He reads the plays incredibly well and has a high footballing IQ. Works well in deep coverage and man on man. Always in position to challenge the football, Thornhill is a great attacker of the ball and not the man. His length and physicality will see him project well in the NFL.\n\nWith the 84th overall pick, the Chiefs selected the most agile and athletic big man you have ever seen, Western Illinois DT Khalen Saunders.\n\n\n\nSaunders is the hungriest man on the park, not because he is big, but because he loves getting after the QB. For a man of his size, he has great athleticism, speed, and agility. He is often seen on the line changing how the defense lines up and has a great footballing brain. He moves well in his hips and can easily dispose of his opponent to get into the secondary.\nGrade: B+\nThe Chiefs have an improved roster in all the right areas. They will be a force in 2019. Anything less than an AFC Championship will be a disappointment for this electric team.
